in libya i came to see the journalists are just not reporting the news, they are truth seekers. imagine for a moment what would happen if we stopped working with courage. if we abandoned our integrity and gave up independence and freedom, it would leave the world a far more ignorant place with dictators free to take advantage and flurish. i learned my profession with the japanese and the highest expression of gratitude is bow so i want to bow for free press and end to our detention. >> let's bring in the international federation of journalist and a former spokesman for the international criminal court and is live from brussels tell us why world press day or press freedom day is so important. >> it's very important because as you just heard we are far from achieving that kind of idea in the real world. we have many colleagues who are behind jail like in egypt but also elsewhere like in turkey and other places. and so this is an occasion for us to rally around our profession and to call again on the government to respect the right of journalists to go about their business in total indepen
